Taken yesterday, he was feeding on little grubs in the grass and was hardly bothered by me parked so close to him, and the camera clicking away.
One taken the other night at the roost along with Steve …Looks like Llandegley Rocks Volcano erupting …possibly 50 million years ago.A lovely Evening decided to go last night, the birds did put on a bit of a performance but the sheer nos of birds and the noise of them coming into roost is mind blowing.. A distant shot of one of the raptors ( Sparrow Hawk I believe) only use the 24/100 zoom the birds are that close. A couple from this morning two for one.. I was after the wren nest building and who should pop up.. Shame to refuse.
My weird Chaffie appears to be from a subspecies occurring in the Azores/Madeiran regions! How it turns up here is one of those things! Happens all the time , of course and sometimes they are escapees , but I have never heard of anyone keeping these!!! On a par with the sun coming out ALL day and England thrashing Wales!!! (Sorry Bazz).
